A bark? I've never heard a hedgehog bark...that's interesting. Do you mean like an actual bark, or more of a hiss/growl? I wonder if anyone else has had experience with that.
My hedgehog won't use a litter pan, but he uses a certain area of the cage all the time (behind the wheel). I put a paper towel or two back there for easier clean-up and he's gotten to where he'll use the paper towel. If you notice your little girl going potty in a certain area, you might try that.
I'm about an hour away from Morgantown, in the Philippi area. I commute to D&E in Elkins--I'm a college student too! I have some friends at WVU. A couple in the band, and a couple slackers that just went there because they were dating people in the band. :lol:
There is a mail group on yahoo for the Hedgehog Welfare Society, and we've recently figured out on there that there are about 8 HWS members who live in the local area (Buckhannon, Fairmont, and other surrounding areas), so we were actually thinking about starting an HWS chapter in the area. If you're interested, you might join up on the mailing group (if you haven't already, that is). I'm just amazed there are so many people in the local area. For awhile, I thought I was one of the only ones. I was pleasantly surprised otherwise!
